Ragazzi Ratline


“Pasolini celebrates an 
ideal of archaic ingenuousness 
belonging to an immemorial 
civiltà contadina.”—Robert Wells
The Times Literary Supplement 
4 (Oct. 5, 1984)

If I wanted to—
escape the boring
existential angst

The usual struggle—
the same old problem
of human existence

I’d want perhaps—
a fast ragazzi ratline 
outta the human race

After all, why go—
thru the whole thing
from birth to death?

Why not take a—
shortcut thru all the
usual Schadenfreude?

Adolescent archetype—
thanks to Miss Jung
a quickie teen detour?
